The three quickest ways to microwave eggs

The Three Quickest Ways to Microwave Eggs

Really love eggs but don't have a ton of time to prepare 'em? Here are BuzzFeed's three easy ways to make delicious eggs in a flash.

Two-minute scrambled eggs
Crack two eggs in a mug
Add a splash of milk for fluffiness
Set for two minutes on high

Poached egg
Crack one egg in a mug
Add 1/3 cup of water
Cover with a dish
Set for 50 seconds on high
Burst for 10 seconds if not done

The 2.5 minute omelet
Crack 2 eggs in a bowl
Spread evenly on a greased flat dish
Microwave (covered) for 90 seconds
Stir, then another 60 seconds uncovered

Of course microwave power varies, so you may need a little more (or less) time.

Pass what? Water? Feces? The dumb test? I'm betting the third choice.

I've been microwaving eggs in the microwave since the 70's. I use the number of eggs divided into the number of people or family you serve. For instance 6 egg's will serve 2-3 people. I mix the egg's in a bowl and stir. Then I add ham, butter, velvetta, and spray with Pam( to make the dish easier to clean after) onions, jalapeno's, or whatever you like. Micro on high for 3 minutes, stop and stir. Add an additional minute or so when you see them cooking. Then stir (very important) and add 20-30 seconds until you see them the way you like, soft scramble, medium, or well done. It's fantastic and taste better then any way I've prepared eggs. Don't try any other cheese but velvetta or generic as other cheese's tend to seperate.

Never use an apostrophe when you mean more than one. Egg's means something belongs to the eggs. Sorry, but this drives me nuts. Apostrophes are used to show possession or a contraction like "it's" for "it is". Also don't make the mistake of using "it's" for "belonging to it". I know that's a possessive pronoun, but you don't say hi's or her's, do you?

I can never microwave eggs on high. They explode every time. My 'wave requires that I cook them low and slow (much like on the stove top) and interrupt the cook time every few seconds lest they burst. And you can't do eggs in the wave without using a pan spray or they stick to whatever cup, vessel mercilessly.

I find this whole thing a sad comment on our society..
That people are in such a hurry that they cannot take the time to cook an egg.
Come on people, slow down.........

Maybe it has been around forever, but this is first time I read or hear about cooking eggs in microwave, so even if things are old news to some, it also can be new to others. So chill, and skip if you already know, but allow others to maybe learn something new..

Sorry, nomatter how fast a microwave is, foods taste better when cooked the right way. I have an actual microwave omelet device and in two minutes you have a rubber egg.

By the way instead of adding milk, add a little water, much fluffier than with milk for scrambled eggs/omlette. Two minutes too long. little less time for 1000w microwave.

Umm..it takes me about 75 seconds to scramble beaten eggs with a drop of diluted baking soda in that antique small frying pan n which I have melted a pat of butter..

Better to add water than milk for fluffy scrambled eggs or omelets.

Try a sunny side up egg in microwave like my kid did. Its easier to buy a new microwave than to clean up the mess.
